Launching of IPN (Innovation with Purpose Network)

A network of innovation ecosystem builders, universities, institutions and businesses joining hands for innovation- with- purpose ideas and projects to flourish and positively impact the community


Our story begins when we work with university talents including students and lecturers in training and coaching for them about innovation and entrepreneurship, we realize that:

(1) Many of the projects and ideas can be turned into impact projects to benefit the community and/or help achieve 17 sustainable development goals. However, not many of them are supported in terms of capacity building, mentoring and coaching to develop their projects. 

(2)None in the market is there to help them to connect with business world. At the same time, corporates and SMEs are struggling to find talented people for intra-innovation and market expansion

Therefore, IPN is to achieve 3 main goals:

  • Connecting talented and passionate individuals from universities and institutions with business world
  • Enabling innovative ideas to take shape via capacity building programs including design thinking & Lean Startup(training, coaching, mentoring)
  • Helping corporates and SMEs to get closer to quality human resources and potential investment in innovation from early stages
